I benefited from the technological teaching tool and also became aware that faculty development program using a train the trainer model is essential to increase the effective use of clinical simulation in nursing education. These are just a few highlights of the take home lessons I gained from my six months experience at TWU. Above all, I was most impressed by the culture of teaching and learning interactions between faculty and students on this campus. I had the opportunities to attend many didactic lectures in both undergraduate and graduate level of nursing courses. I truly appreciate the rich resources and support systems students enjoy on this campus. I received more help and support from faculty, staff, and students than I had expected; and I exceeded my learning objectives than I had originally hoped to accomplish. I have grown both personally and professionally in the last six months. I will treasure the experience I had, and the friendships I built for the rest of my life.

Would you recommend the VS experience to others?
